I don't agree on the code size. Code size is comparable. I just did a
quick ls through /bin. There also seem to be a lot of cases where Clang
generates smaller binaries.
Some time ago the binaries were indeed a lot bigger, but that turned out
to be a bug in Clang, where a compiler flag had a wrong default value,
namely the flag that determined whether zero-initialized data had to go
in BSS or not.
